Police in Delhi has lodged an FIR over a tool-kit on farmers’ protest shared by climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
Thunberg, who has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize tweeted in solidarity with the farmers’ protests soon after pop icon Rihanna attracted attention towards the protests in India.
On Tuesday in her first tweet on Tuesday night, the teenage activist said, “We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India” and shared a CNN article on the ongoing farmers’ protest in India and how internet has been suspended around the Delhi borders. Her tweet followed that of Rihanna who brought global attention to the issue.
In a follow-up tweet, Greta Thunberg wrote, “Here’s an updated toolkit by people on the ground in India if you want to help. (They removed their previous document as it was outdated.) #StandWithFarmers #FarmersProtest” and shared a document on details about the agitation.
Delhi Police’s FIR has been filed under Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race) and Section 120B (criminal conspiracy), India Today reported.
